Having said all that about lightweight they are breathable from top to bottom and are remarkably robust compared to many other lightweight gaiters. The adjustable instep strap is made from durable thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and is rounded so that it doesn't damage bu grips outsoles well. The gaiter has an attached front lace hook to increase the secure fit and it adjusts to fit different sizes and profiles of footwear and legs. The asymmetrical zipper is off-set entry is easy to do up and is really comfy when your ankle flexes. The zip-pull folds down at the top and locks to prevent unzipping, whilst the storm flap behind it provides extra comfort and moisture protection. At the top of the Lave Gaiter an elasticized drawcord with toggle lock seals the top of the gaiter, whilst all stitching is soft and comfortable even if when against the skin with shorts.
If you are all about fast light backpacking with maximum protection and performance this is the gaiter for you.
